Relax – Alva


“Dear Alan,

A week has passed since I had my last session and I’d like you to know that for the first time in about two years I feel excited about how I’m going to spend the rest of my life.

After feeling depressed, exhausted and even suicidal, I couldn’t cope with my job, my children or my husband. Our relationship deteriorated very badly, it nearly split us up.

My doctor was treating me for post natal depression and I’d been taking anti-depressants for eighteen months. But I still felt as if I’d been let down and very lonely.

Then one day my husband suggested that I make an appointment with you. I knew nothing about hypnosis and I was wary.

But he made the appointment and I came along to see you feeling very desperate and scared. You were extremely understanding and put me at ease.

You said that by the end of the session I would be smiling again. I was smiling and you made me realise that I didn’t have post natal depression, but that I couldn’t let go of my mother who had died just four months before my second son was born.

You helped me to say good bye to her and you also taught me to be confident, self assured and how to relax. I know now that I have to stand on my own two feet and not to depend on other people as I had done with my dearly loved mother.

I am now ready to enjoy my life with the people I love and who are alive. My children need me to be strong and that’s what I am.

I will never be able to thank you enough for what you helped me to achieve.

My mother would be proud. I dearly hope that this letter may help others who are in similar situations and help them not to be afraid, that they will learn to trust and allow themselves to be helped.

I’ll say good bye now and keep up the good work.

Yours Faithfully,

Alva “
